romney was telling all these lies, why on earth was barack obama not correcting them during the debate in front of over 60 million americans? >> and that's what i would ask, i would love to honestly hear newt gingrich's response to this, because as he said in his previous debates, when he backed down a bit, you just cannot debate somebody who is dishonest. you just can't. this is again, quoting newt gingrich. the people say i'm a good debater. i can't debate somebody who won't tell the truth. >> what i'm asking you, why did the president not correct any of these apparent lies? it's the biggest audience of the year. it's a huge debate. it's potentially a game changing moment in the election. you say mitt romney lied 25 times. barack obama didn't point that out to the american public once. >> yeah. i think he should have corrected some of them. i'm not here as a surrogate for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put
for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when you are in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put forth your plan. the president chose to put forth his plan last night and that's what spent his time on. but certainly there were unanswered lies. >> newt gingrich, you've heard the allegations. apparently barack obama is facing the same problem you faced, is that mitt romney was just telling loads of lies and you can't do anything about it. >> first of all, it's a great honor to have governor granholm quote me and maybe one of the few times she ever does. but it was a very nice thing for her to do. i think what was intriguing, she actually raised a point that i was talking with my friends about today. i get the sense that obama never watched the debates that romney and i had, particularly in florida. even though both my wife and i have said publicly over the last couple weeks if romney arrives as tough, as aggressive with the clarity and the assertiveness he used in florida, we
couldn't tell. i knew what you were going to ask us. bomb, obama was looking down so much. whenever romney looked at obama he would square up with obama, obama was looking down and couldn't tell what he was wearing or what he looked like. melissa: what do you think. >> i think the same thing. the demeanor played a lot who looked better on debate. melissa: i wonder how do they decide who wears red, blue, red state, blue state. red is power. blue is calming? >> i never like that designation, democrats blue as republicans red. i think conspiracy by the left-wing media is red is angry color. look at me i'm wearing red right now. melissa: what color tie would you wear if you were in the debate? >> i don't know. melissa: yellow. >> demeanor you have that is important. one. need a free vacation? jetblue is offering supporters of the losing candidate in the legislation free flights out of the country. this is pretty funny. participants who register who they're voting for in november, are automatically entered to win a free flight to mexico, south america, or the caribbean islands. so you gu
? >> well, i think tell have the same deflatingesque as the jobs report after the democratic convention last time did. last month, it came out the day after obama's speech. i think it took some wind out of his sails. but i think there were very specific things things that romy accomplished that is important to focus on. number 1, obama agreed there was no difference between them on social security. and obama agreed that neither of their medicare plans would hurt existing elderly or anyone about to retire. they disagreed on the $716 million that obama caught current retiree, but the medi-scare and the social security scare tactic can't be used because obama stipulated that that won't be a problem. i think by failing to raise the 45%, the cayman islands and the tax return and the bain capital, obama was basically conceding that those are not legitimate shots. how can you spend $200 million advertising to push these facts and then when you confront the guy, you don't mention them? >> greta: you see -- i actually thought that that was smart because he looks like he is above this. that he is more
't think it tells us much that many people didn't already think about president obama. he has become much more sophisticated in these arguments. but i think at the end of the day, he is making a similar argument today, high is, effect in effect, pretty open about the class warfare argument. it is not as explicit, but the philosophy is the same. this doesn't surprise me to see this. >> the national attitudes are set on president obottom a. people have seen him come into their living room, ever day for four years. they have a sense of who he is as a person. so as these videos come out, it is going to be hard for them to really shake things up with the independent and swing voters, which are who matters in november. >> it is not only rich and poor, it is black and white as well. he makes specific racial arguems. in ept -- 2002, the time of enron, everybody's talking about enron. he talks about enron, using tax accountants and tax loopholes to make money and -- and... and mistreat employees. he said, it's not the equivalent of dogs and fire hoses, but i am not saying what enron executives did
: yes. yes. kay not tell you president obama has a great -- he is just a great man. and as far as sununu, if he wasn't saying what he says here in this country, he would be in jail someplace or beheaded. thank god for the united states. >> jamal: absolutely. we're lucky we don't have to have that kind of result especially those of us who talk for a living on the radio. thank you for being here. steve in perriesville indiana. >> caller: yeah, hey. sununu is calling president obama lazy the whole house and senate republican party has been lazy ever since they have been in office. they have done nothing and they are calling this man lazy and un-american. they are the ones that are un-american. >> jamal: yeah, to talk about people are un-american, that takes us back to an ugly time in history. you had -- paul robeson who is a great artist who had political beliefs that were unpopular at the time who was treated so badly. don't you think it's time for us to get past the un-american talk? >> caller: oh, yeah. barack obama is one of the best presidents we have ever h
in virginia a short while ago. mr. obama touts the new unemployment report telling the crowd it shows that his policies are moving the country forward. the september jobless rate dropping to 7.8%, it's down from 8.1%. doug mckelway live at the white house with more. doug? >> reporter: hey, jon, these new unemployment numbers obviously coming as tremendously welcome news to an obama campaign that is still reeling from what most now agree was a lackluster debate performance last month. in fairfax, virginia, at george mason university, the president departed from his standard stump speech to tout these new numbers. here he is just moments ago. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. [cheers and applause] because of your strength and resilience, the strength and resilience of the american people, we've made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> reporter: but behind these apparently encouraging unemployment n
think he can. i tell you, after that debate and after barack obama's performance, which was staggeringly bad. >> all right. >> no, i mean it. >> okay. >> i'm hearing this from democrats. and this broke through, you know, we always hear about how americans aren't paying attention. they're looking at reality. so this broke through. everybody was talking. but not just how well romney did but how badly the president performed. >> well, just as i think it was premature to declare the race over before, i think it's too soon to say that performance is widely watched as it was and as strong as it was is actually going to move numbers. we've yet to see any numbers move. i think they probably will some and i think that on the other hand did governor romney win the day yesterday in the news cycle given how strong he was thursday night? he didn't decisively win it. he did one event late in the day. he did one event late in the day. look at the evening newscast, the morning papers. >> he doesn't have to win every day. >> i think he has to win most days. he lost about two months of days. i think he's
the obama campaign has a fabulous ground game. we can't tell yet how good -- it may -- romney effort may be fabulous or not be or may be in between, we don't know that. but to echo something that fred said, the obama campaign has to have a better ground game because of the challenge they have motivating and getting young and latino voters out. don't think the ground game, thereby nice for the african-american community because i think the african-american community is motivated where they don't necessarily need organizational effort but young people and latinos it's a challenge. so it's essential for the obama campaign to have a very aggressive ground game because two groups were so important with victory last time and are not going to be there on their own devices without a lot of motivational effort. i think they have to. >> that's an important point. a couple observations. i don't know how good the romney ground game will be. i know it will be miles ahead for 2008 for mccain. from that standpoint, you know, it's going to be just significantly better. secondly, fred made a good point w
romney's been saying for the last year. >> president obama cannot rewind and unleash that last night at the podium? but the way he and his opponent's campaign have adjusted their tactics in moving on from last night's debate tells you more about where the campaign is going from here than any dial test you saw during last night's debate. that's next with jonathan alter.
